Artist: Dirty Projectors
 Album: Bitte Orca
  Song: Two Doves

[http://www.indieguitartabs.com/bands/dirty_projectors/two_doves.html]

Tabbed by: Kris Ellestad

Site: knilstad.blogspot.com

This is a fairly simple song that requires basic fingerpicking
technique, i.e. thumb and forefinger, however independence of 
each finger on the right hand makes it more fluid.

I've nearly written out the entire song note-for-note, though
it's really the same material repeated with slight variations.

When in doubt, refer back to the recording!

LEGEND:

Geranium kisser
Skin like silk and face like glass
Don't confront me with my failures
Kiss me with your mouth open
For your love, better than wine
For your cologne is really fragrant
Call on me, call on me, call on me

Your hair is like an eagle
Your two eyes are like two doves
But our bed is like a failure
All day up in the family
At the waning of the light
To the chamber that conceived me
Call on me, call on me, call on me

Geranium killer
Throat of soil of and mind like stone
Please don't defend a silver lining
Around the halo of what is already shining
When all the planets are aligning
For an afternoon that's never ending
Call on me, call on me, call on me
